ENGLAND CENTRE Kallum Watkins is set to return for Leeds Rhinos against Castleford Tigers tonight, after missing two games due to an ankle injury.

Half-back/hooker Rob Burrow, who has also been sidelined since the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final, because of a damaged quad, is included in Rhinos’ initial 19-man squad, but remains a doubt.

Ashton Golding is vying for a recall, but Mitch Achurch (hand) drops out from the team beaten at Catalans Dragons last week.

Matt Cook is back in contention for Tigers after a one-match ban and Liam Finn and Michael Channing are also on stand-by, with Gadwin Springer dropping out.

Leeds Rhinos: from Hardaker, Briscoe, Watkins, Moon, Hall, Sinfield, McGuire, Leuluai, Cuthbertson, Peacock, S Ward, Ablett, Delaney, Singleton, Walters, Lilley, Garbutt, Burrow, Golding.

Castleford Tigers: from Dorn, Gibson, McMeeken, Shenton, Solomona, Roberts, Gale, Lynch, Milner, Millington, Holmes, Moors, Wheeldon, Cook, Boyle, Maher, McShane, Finn, Channing.

Referee: James Child (Batley)

Kick-off: Tonight, 8pm.

Castleford Tigers' coach Daryl Powell.
